Always incredible discoveries in the shallows of Elkhorn Slough. The predatory sea slug, Navanax was noticed by one of our young clients on a private guided family outing today.
Using chemoreceptors, this colorful slug seeks out the slime trails produced by other slugs such as the colorful hermissenda nudibranch.
Navanax is a voracious predator known to both eat and mate with other Navanax slugs it may encounter. Join us on a private family outing with http://www.bluewaterventures.org.
